PSA – Personal Space

I’m one of those people who don’t like being touched. More like, I don’t like hugs from people I don’t know (it takes anywhere between 2 to 3 years before I’ll let someone hug me without being completely freaked out). Hell, my dad have hugged like twice in the past 8 years and both times were for my graduation, and let me tell you I was COMPLETELY weirded out by the whole thing. Same with mum.

So, one of the work people who I have only known for 2 to 3 weeks, and have only ever had 1 real conversation with that lasted for about 5 mins, put his arm around my shoulders today. I didn’t exactly react with smiles and sunshine. There was unfortunately no elbow to the stomach but I did put the verbal smack down on him; apparently I can pull off a death glare. And well, he pretty much have avoided me all day, which is good, because I’m really pissed that he or anyone, male or female, would touch me without my OK’ing it.

Yes, it may not be a big deal for him or most people to be hugged by someone who couldn’t even be considered an acquaintance, but notice how I don’t keep friends who don’t respect me enough to accept my personal space issues. No one, I mean absolutely no one I consider a friend, male or female, touch me, or give me any form of hugs without my prior consent. So yes, this may be blowing things out of proportion, but seriously, RESPECT other people’s issues, especially personal space issues.

OK, that’s my PSA done. I’ll get around talking about Supernatural probably tomorrow morning. I need to torrent it when I get home, which will take a night, watch it and then think about it.
